Call It What You Will...

'Cause I've never bothered to name it. What used to be my favorite salad topping has now evolved in to my favorite "better hurry & eat, before the baby wants to eat again" snack.

1 packet Good Seasonings Italian or Zesty Italian dressing mix 
oil, vinegar & water to make dressing
4 to 6 Roma Tomatoes chopped
1 can corn
1 can black beans
1 can black eyed peas
Green onions chopped
2 avocados sliced & cubed
Salad greens or tortilla chips (or both)

Make dressing according to directions, in a bowl large enough for all ingredients. Rinse & drain black beans & black eyed peas & add to bowl. Drain corn & add. Slice tomatoes & green onions & add to bowl. Mix together and refrigerate (over night if possible). Add avocado just before eating & only to what will be eaten right away. Now add a generous scoop to the top of your salad instead of regular salad dressing or into a bowl and eat atop tortilla chips. ENJOY!

Foil Dinners

Thursday, April 7, 2011 4 comments
Ok so it has been a little too long since anyone has posted. (Try 10 months too long!) So I thought I would break the ice. First of all.. the main reason I wanted to post is because I happened upon Nikki's blog and did you know she has a baby girl!? Holy Moly! I didn't even know she was pregnant! Congrats- I am so happy for you! So, get crackin' girls- I wanna hear more!

Now back to the recipe, My Family Loves to go camping and Logan and I make it a point to go every summer, in addition Logan likes to make one trip during the winter with his brothers or friends. So I have made a lot of foil dinners and this one is my favvvvvvvorite!!!

Onion or Celery (Or both!)
Cheddar Cheese Soup
Shredded Cheese
Salt, pepper & Garlic
& Butter

First a little trick Elise Eberhard taught me is to start with a big leaf of cabbage on the bottom, this will prevent burning and it help to contain all the yummy moisture. (Plus its my MOST favorite thing in there! It gets so tender and yummy!)

Then you cut up all your veggies and meat, its important that they are all the same size because they will cook at the same rate, so once your meat is done, your carrots will be tender. Once all your veggies are cut put them in a big bowl with some butter and all the seasonings your want and mix it all up! 

Then place your yummyness in your "cabbage bowl" and top with some Cheddar Cheese Soup and Shredded Cheese... oh my gosh I think my mouth is watering! Then wrap in foil! I always double wrap mine because they are usually so huge that I need too.

Now once your coals are nice and hot barry your foil dinner and cook for about 30-45 minutes (depending on the size you cut your veggies) I am always surprised at how fast it cooks, so check it before you think you should!

I realize this is about the most common camping food and you have probably all made it a million times and probably know a bunch of more tips, I just thought I would share mine, but I would LOVE to hear yours! 

Now for my family update, I am preggos and having a boy! Whoo Hoo! I am due in late June and super excited. Bou is 2 years old and potty trained! We still live on campus and are super happy!
